Ensuring patient safety in the management of medicines requires the efficient collection, administration, analysis and distribution of huge amounts of data from different sources. This requires the development of generic methods and tools for tasks such as: (1) data mining and semantics-based inference; (2) integration of heterogeneous scientific information databases relating to drugs and diseases; (3) terminology and coding issues; (4) adverse drug events and signal detection; and (5) networking and security. Collaborative research and development will be required to develop coordinated health care information services. Easy access to high-quality information will provide better health care and increased cost efficiency.
